AXL Academy is a tuition-free PK-8 expeditionary charter school in Aurora that delivers academic achievement, character development and social equity through an active instructional model and a strong school culture.
Aurora Expeditionary Learning (AXL) Academy was founded in 2008 as a PK-8 Expeditionary Learning school. The founders chose the expeditionary learning model out of the belief students should be given the opportunity for real-world experiences and active learning through field work and projects. AXL continues in Aurora today to deliver a progressive, real-world experience for every crew member using expeditions, technology and a community-based environment.
As a parent of a scholar at AXL Academy, I can say that this school shines at their mission to help all of their scholars achieve, and feel empowered. They encourage being part of a crew, which is inclusive and showcases each scholar's different strengths to function as a powerhouse. This school is a melting pot of all different backgrounds, and each child is given the freedom to learn and engage equally. I believe that AXL Academy's goal is to help each scholar achieve their own greatness, and prepare them for the World ahead of them. This is done not only through academics, but through interpersonal relationships, learning to work as a team, and to be strong contributors to our society. - AXL Parent
